How long will carrots that I've shredded in the food processor stay good in the fridge? Also what's the best way to store them?

I've never tried storing shredded carrots for a long time, but for cut up carrots, I store 'em in water, as the issue is they dehyrate quickly; you'll just have to dry 'em off before use. –  Joe Sep 16 '10 at 0:56
    
Why would you not just shred when you need them? Whole carrots will last must longer. As Joe says - they will dehydrate quickly. –  NBenatar Sep 16 '10 at 9:08

According to the website StillTasty, fresh, raw whole or cut up carrots will last 2 to 3 weeks in the fridge.

I would think that it would be a shorter time (1 week) for shredded carrots. I'd store them in a container with a tight sealing lid, or in a plastic bag with the air squeezed out.
